DAMODAR MADGAONKAR is a Goan artist and sculptor, who started out as a commercial artist at a very young age. He was always of a creative bent and excelled in drawing and painting during his school days as he got guidance from his fine arts teacher Mangala Kamat. As Damodar dabbled in various forms of arts, he developed skills to create commercial art and started rendering his services to many top hotels in Goa. However, Damodar always wanted to turn into a full-time artist and joined PIED PIPER ACADEMY (founded by world renowned Goan artist Wilson D’Souza). Under the tutelage of Mr. D’Souza, he developed his own style — most of his works are based in the realm of realistic fantasy.

My works showcase various thought processes of the human mind. I have used ELEPHANT as a subject of experiment to produce artwork that expresses my viewpoint as I portray my ideas using ELEPHANT anatomy. I believe that no one in this world can understand oneself other than
his or her ownself. I have explained this concept taking a path of observation of human behaviour and reflect my conclusions in my thought-provoking paintings. I believe that we all beings have elephant behaviour in us)
